Rep. Bachmann - Come to DC on Nov. 5th to tell Pelosi NO to health care takeover

The Video above is Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) urging Americans to join her in Washington to tell lawmakers NO to Obamacare.

The Hill reports:

During an appearance on Fox's "Hannity," Bachmann on Friday night said the plan can be defeated, but only if critics make their case face-to-face with legislators.

Bachmann told conservative commentator Sean Hannity, "The clock is ticking 11:59 ...I've never done this before but I am asking people to come to Washington, D.C., by the carload and next Thursday at noon I'll be at a press conference on the steps of the Capitol.

"I'd love to have every one of your viewers to join me so we can go up and down through the halls, find members of Congress, look at the whites of their eyes and say, 'Don't take away my healthcare.'"

After Hannity opined that lawmakers would likely hide from the crowds, Bachmann responded, "It's not inevitable. This doesn't have to pass and I don't think it will pass if we can get people to literally, physically come to Washington, D.C., next week.

"We need to pay a House call on [Speaker] Nancy Pelosi [D-Calif.] and tell her what she can do with the Pelosi healthcare plan," Bachmann added.

The vocal Republican noted that many Blue Dogs -- a group of conservative Democrats -- are on the fence on how to vote.

"That's why this is such an exciting opportunity for us ...This is our liberty and tyranny moment. This is about patriotism and manning up."
